I’m guessing this is from a Hybrid battery leak. I called the dealership and they had not heard of this happening before. Caused burning of my lips, throat, and chest tightness after I commuted 20 min to work. The dealership sent a tow truck for pickup, they did not want me driving it to the dealership.

While I'm not sure of the precise cell layout, the battery case does extend under the vertical part of the rear seat all the way into what would have been the spare tire well. Really, I don't see any other possibility other than electrolyte is somehow wicking up. Scary.

Well, a much more remote possibility might be liquid chemicals encapsulated into the seat foam that have just worked their way loose.
